Bold and daring, yet unpretentious and simple: that sums up the buildings designed by the independent, Oslo-based architectural offices of Reiulf Ramstad Architects (RRA). The Norwegian architect Reiulf Ramstad who founded his firm in 1995, draws inspiration from the designs of Aldo Rossi, Carlo Scarpa, and Sverre Fehn. He examines their unique design vocabulary, vivid material qualities, and special look and feel and reinterprets them in his own buildings in innovative ways.
Over the years, RRA has produced a wide range of innovative and groundbreaking projects with an exceptional variation of scale and program. Reiulf Ramstad Architects have earned a reputation for creating bold, simple architecture with a strong connection to the Scandinavian context and the impressive Scandinavian landscape in particular. The firm has shown a multitude of approaches in solving assignments, both nationally and internationally and has received numerous awards and recognitions for its projects.
